Powerless Mage Battles Psionically Gifted Dragons and Superstitious Steampunk Society

Unproven

#1 Best Seller in free YA SFF Steampunk novels 
#2 Best Seller in free YA SFF Action & Adventure

When Shadow, a powerless mage, chose exile to preserve family honor, he didn’t expect a mysterious call to defeat psionic, camouflaging dragons – nor did he expect them to offer him a glimpse into a life wielding a mage’s power.

Surprises mount when a steampunk army invades his homeland and Shadow is tasked with uncovering the secret behind magic’s evolution while leading a youth team infested with at least one traitor. Distracted by an unwelcome romance, losses mount as he stumbles through treachery, vampiric vines, ancient disembodied mages, and the legendary Mists of Ishmandool where few escape with their sanity.

By the time Shadow announces he’s found the solution, it may be too late. Even if it’s not, it risks the complete annihilation of his people and worse, it’s unproven.

Unproven has drawn comparisons to Ursula Le Guin (Harry Potter’s biggest influence), Elaine Cunningham (the queen of dark fantasy and Forgotten Realms), and Fydor Dostoevsky (psychological godfather of Crime and Punishment). With strong female characters, a dark M. Night Shyamalan twist, dragons on steroids, a Brandon Sanderson-esque tight plot, and prodigious world building, Unproven is destined to satiate readers who enjoy sword and sorcery, mythical creatures, ghosts, dark fantasy, psychological thrillers, and Dungeons & Dragons.

Forget the coffee. Unproven will keep you reading late into the night. Grab your copy and see why veteran producer Beth “Bea” Roose predicted it would be a hit

 

Superb Worldbuilding

I can see why the author gets compared to Ursula Le Guin ...the worldbuilding is superb and I was glad to see the protagonist who was not your standard action hero, but a person struggling with anxiety and self-doubt.

Un Unexpected Delight

The story was not what I was expecting and I was joyfully surprised. There are twists and turns and you really can't guess what is going to happen in the next chapter. I recommend this book for the story.

Epic! New Favorite Magical Beast

Excellent story, wonderful characters, and I have a new favorite magical beast. Sorry dragons, you are now only second favorite. I hope the author considers a follow-up.
